The buzzard [is] a kind of hawk.
The tyrant of Sicily "[was] a common prostitute, ready [to give himself] to the most debauched, a jackdaw, a buzzard, presenting his backside to all who wanted it. When he died, [Timaeus says that] his wife cried out to him in lamentation, 'What [did] I not [carnally do to] you? And what [did] you not [reciprocate to] me?'"[1]
Greek Original:
Τριόρχης: ἱέρακος εἶδος ὁ τριόρχης. ὅτι ὁ τύραννος Σικελίας κοινὸς πόρνος, ἕτοιμος τοῖς ἀκρατεστέροις, κολοιός, τριόρχης, πάντων τῶν βουλομένων τοῖς ὄπισθεν ἔμπροσθεν γεγονώς: ὃς ὅτε ἀπέθανε, τὴν γυναῖκά φησι κατακλαιομένην αὐτὸν οὕτω θρηνεῖν: τί δ' οὐκ ἐγὼ σέ; τί δ' οὐκ ἐμὲ σύ;
Note:
[1] Polybius 12.15.2-3, on Agathocles. The translation has been largely taken over from alpha 117, to which the reader is referred for notes and bibliography. Cf. also tau 1188.
